If you were to ask anyone for their recommendation for a vegetarian restaurant in Portland, they would recommend Green Elephant. This vegetarian bistro focuses on mindful eating that has garnered fans out of tourists and restaurant critics alike.
If you’re looking for a restaurant with options for all diets, Green Elephant’s sister restaurant, Boda Maine, is the place to be. Boda Maine is a beloved Thai restaurant on Congress St. that draws in a strong evening crowd for their elevated tapas and skewer bar. Beyond tapas, they also have satisfying entrees and desserts that will make you want to book your second reservation right after your first bite.
This noodle bar is the perfect lunch spot to fulfill your craving for noodles or other Thai dishes. Half of the menu can be made vegetarian upon request and many can also be made vegan. The chive cakes are not to be missed!
